During Your Appointment
Once we have you checked in, you will start your first visit with our hygienist. She will begin by taking x-rays to get a clear view of your dental health. She will also perform a periodontal exam of your gums to determine the level of cleaning you will need. Once your professional cleaning is completed, you will meet with Dr. Michael Atencio.
Dr. Atencio will take the time to discuss any oral health issues that are apparent from your gum exam and x-rays. He will recommend any treatments that are needed, as well as preventive care, to maintain your smile. This is also the time for you to ask any questions you have about our services, including our sedation, cosmetic or implant dentistry options.
If you do require dental treatments for decay, gum disease or any other issues, we may be able to address those issues the same day. This can save you time and get you started on the road to improved oral health. For more extensive treatments, we can create a plan and give you any expense information before you schedule your next appointment.
We are excited to meet you and get to know you and your family. Contact Atencio Dentistry today to schedule your first visit.
